Canal-side
Sheep Shearing

                 
     
While moored by the river bank,
we watch a computer programmer shear a pet sheep. Not simple!

     
                 
      The first problem is that
the ewe has two lambs
who insist on being part of the action.
   
   
 
The next step is to capture the ewe.
   
Astride the ewe for control, all seems under
control until the shears clog with wool.
   
Shears back in working order;
shearer and shearee are exposing some skin!
 
   
While the ewe staggers off to ponder life without her coat, the man's wife comes down
to the river to chat with us as another canal boat, adorned with flower pots, glides by.
